Chopped Part Deux - Dave Style... Sunchoke Cake

This weekend it was Dave's turn. His mission, to make a meal from Red Snapper, Sunchokes, Cranberries, Arugula and Fingerling Potatoes. Two hours later, *giggling*, he came up with a very tasty meal. This recipe is what he came up with using the Sunchokes, or the Jerusalem Artichokes. Hope you all enjoy!

1 pkg Sunchokes, grated
1 cup of parmigiano reggiano cheese, grated
1 tbsp minced garlic
5 eggs
2 cherry peppers, pickled, and seeded (either hot or mild), pureed
salt and pepper
1 tsp lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together. The Sunchoke releases alot of water. So you can either put in a colander and press out the additional liquid, or as you are forming into a patty, press the liquid out. The patty should be about a sand-dollar size. Put olive oil on a preheated griddle. Place the patties on the griddle and cook on one side till brown. Then flip. Don't flip too early, or they will fall apart.
